253 Flinders Lane
Vic 3000

Without a keen eye, one could stroll past Journal Canteen without noting its presence, tucked away up a flight of stairs in the Centre for Adult Education in the Melbourne City Library on Flinders Lane, near the junction with Degraves street.

Inside the feel of the school room it inhabits is maintained, with big communal tables, and old wooden furniture. We were seated at the bar style spots along the wall.

The short special menu was up on the chalk boards.

Joss went for the Salad Niçoise, in this case featuring seared tuna, potato, cooked tomato, green beans, boiled egg, anchovies and olives.

I had the spaghetti vognole featuring some great little clams in a simple delicate sauce.

The bill came to $41 including a soft drink and a coffee. The service was friendly and at a good pace for a weekday lunch in the city, and another visit will be on the cards.
